Vastushastra (architecture)Source: Brill: Śaivism and the Tantric Traditions (architecture)
Bhṛśa (भृश) refers to one of the deities to be installed in the ground plan for the construction of houses, according to the Bṛhatkālottara, chapter 112 (the vāstuyāga-paṭala).—The plan for the construction is always in the form of a square. That square is divided into a grid of cells (padas). [...] Once these padas have been laid out, deities [e.g., Bhṛśa] are installed in them. In the most common pattern 45 deities are installed.
Bhṛśa as a doorway deity is associated with the Nakṣatra called Hasta and the consequence is kalaha. [...] The Mayasaṃgraha (verse 5.156-187) describes a design for a 9-by-9-part pura, a residential complex for a community and its lead figure. [...] This record lists a place for the kitchen at Bhṛśa, Antarikṣa and Agni (bhṛśāditritaye).
Vastushastra (वास्तुशास्त्र, vāstuśāstra) refers to the ancient Indian science (shastra) of architecture (vastu), dealing with topics such architecture, sculpture, town-building, fort building and various other constructions.

Pancaratra (worship of Nārāyaṇa)Source: Universität Wien: Sudarśana's Worship at the Royal Court According to the Ahirbudhnyasaṃhitā
Bhṛśa (भृश) refers to the “violent” (falling of meteors), according to the Ahirbudhnyasaṃhitā, belonging to the Pāñcarātra tradition which deals with theology, rituals, iconography, narrative mythology and others.—Accordingly, “An abnormal modification caused by a aggressive ritual against Kings, occurring at the improper time, dreadful and all-reaching, is characterized by the these signs: [...] meteors fall violently (mahā-ulkā—nipatanti maholkāḥ bhṛśaṃ) making dreadful sounds; ministers fight with each other out of greediness; in the night a terrifying rainbow shines, even if there are no clouds; here and there in the city great danger arises because of fire; [...] from such and other signs he should understand that the enemy is performing a aggressive ritual”.
Pancaratra (पाञ्चरात्र, pāñcarātra) represents a tradition of Hinduism where Narayana is revered and worshipped. Closeley related to Vaishnavism, the Pancaratra literature includes various Agamas and tantras incorporating many Vaishnava philosophies.
General definition (in Jainism)Source: The University of Sydney: A study of the Twelve Reflections
Bhṛśa (भृश) refers to “strongly” (e.g., ‘to hold strongly in the mind the reflections’), according to the 11th century Jñānārṇava, a treatise on Jain Yoga in roughly 2200 Sanskrit verses composed by Śubhacandra.—Accordingly, “Capable soul, for purification of the mind, you must hold strongly (bhṛśa) in the mind the reflections which are established by the gods of gods (i.e. the Tīrthaṅkaras) in the great scripture of the [Jain] canon”.
Jainism is an Indian religion of Dharma whose doctrine revolves around harmlessness (ahimsa) towards every living being. The two major branches (Digambara and Svetambara) of Jainism stimulate self-control (or, shramana, ‘self-reliance’) and spiritual development through a path of peace for the soul to progess to the ultimate goal.
